The first time working in a corporate environment is an exciting time for anyone. It was the first time I began to see the benefits from the countless hours I spent with my face in books begin to pay off, and I finally realized why I spent so much time studying. It is that excitement and motivation that makes junior co-op students a valuable but often underused resource in many companies.

Between experiencing a co-op work term abroad and authoring his first book, winter 2016 turned out to be a pretty good term for architecture student Justin Ng.
Ng traveled to Helsinki, Finland when he secured a job with ALA Architects, a global firm that specializes in concert halls, theatres and elaborate public spaces.
